The Out-of-Towners



I had a wonderful day yesterday.  My sisters Betsey and Joan took the train from Milford, Connecticut to spend the day in Manhattan with their brother.  The first thing they wanted to see was the High Line.  They had read about it and seen my photographs on my blog and couldn't wait to see it.  We took a few hours to walk the entire length of the High Line and stopped for lunch along the way.  Then they wanted to see the memorial plaza and the waterfall pools at the 9/11 Memorial.  It was a great day of hanging out and exploring Manhattan.


While I was waiting for Betsey and Joan to arrive at Grand Central Station, I decided to walk around looking for blog photographs.  I was focusing on the woman with the cellphone photographing the ceiling of the terminal, and was surprised to see how many others in the photograph were looking up as well.  They are looking at the spectacular ceiling, which is painted sky blue and has a number of constellations painted on it, and there are light bulbs that show the stars as well.  It is worth looking up!

What a great day for the three of you to share time together! Sorry I couldn't join you. I would like to request a future get together/tour of all four of us. I remember seeing Grand Central before the cleaning, with dark dirty stone interior. Thanks to Jackie Kennedy for her involvement in restoring it to the original beauty.krs
